    You cannot keep a real rider down. Over here we have the Conquest to help them keep on riding. The Conquest is wheelchair accessible. The disabled driver can stay in their wheelchair while driving with the use of hand controls. There is a remote controlled ramp located in the back of the trike. The wheelchair locks into place with the use of an automated docking system called an EZ-Lock. Usually based around a BMW bike. Very cool. Sold mostly in England for the past few years, MobilityWorks in the USA is setting up demo schedules in areas around the country starting in January 2010.

    I've noticed that most of the disabled riders who post pictures are far more likely to show themselves as the main element of the picture rather than the trike as though the bike is secondary to their new found freedom. See one at a show though and the owner is usually delighted talk at length about his steed and show you all the, sometimes intricate, mechanical details that enable him to carry on riding.
